Different websites will recommend the “best” kitchen layout for you, whether it’s the L-shaped, the U-shaped, or galley style kitchen. Yes, it’s important to keep the basic kitchen triangle in mind, but more modern kitchens have additional appliances, larger square footage and need multiple workstations for more than one cook, which disrupts the basic triangle mentality.
This website outlines the different kitchen shape options and gives you some guidelines for deciding which layout will actually work for you. Do you need to be able to see the kids in the backyard when you’re doing the dishes? Or do you prefer to watch the TV in the living room from your seat at the counter? Research new alternatives so you’re happy with the final product.
